I Will Survive

Gloria Gaynor

      First I was afraid
      I was petrified
      Kept thinking I could never live
      without you by my side
      But I spent so many nights
      thinking how you did me wrong
      I grew strong
      I learned how to carry on
      and so you're back
      from outer space
      I just walked in to find you here
      with that sad look upon your face
      I should have changed my stupid lock
      I should have made you leave your key
      If I had known for just one second
      you'd be back to bother me

      Go on now go walk out the door
      just turn around now
      'cause you're not welcome anymore
      weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
      you think I'd crumble
      you think I'd lay down and die
      Oh no, not I
      I will survive
      as long as i know how to love
      I know I will stay alive
      I've got all my life to live
      I've got all my love to give
      and I'll survive
      I will survive

      It took all the strength I had
      not to fall apart
      kept trying hard to mend
      the pieces of my broken heart
      and I spent oh so many nights
      just feeling sorry for myself
      I used to cry
      Now I hold my head up high
      and you see me
      somebody new
      I'm not that chained up little person
      still in love with you
      and so you felt like dropping in
      and just expect me to be free
      now I'm saving all my loving
      for someone who's loving me.
